Are you a sales professional? Trying to recruit that next network marketing superstar? A little too focused on sales or recruiting? This is your list! I would like to present you with 10 things to do today besides selling, because you need real life sometimes. You need to be able to talk to your prospect about your children’s activities, the new movie that’s out, or a great new book you’ve read. Because if you cannot relate beyond your new awesome product, you’ve lost. You will not build a relationship or trust. Time to learn to be social.
This blog post is all stream of consciousness writing. The house is quiet. Everyone gets to play except for me because I have to write a blog post. Luckily I am finishing up with a client today so I am only monitoring them, checking my email every once in a while. You would think that writing a new blog post with all the time in the world would be easy. But no.
So I am just doing my stream of consciousness writing hoping that a subject will come out. I know I have been working hard on my experiments this week. I completed some PDF training that I had been working on. It is for sale, we will see if sales occur.
New Capture Page
I created a capture page about a month ago, along with a 12 unit email course, to come up with a new strategy. Ultimately I have no idea where this strategy will go but it looks promising right now. So I have been writing, just not for the blog. And I have to tell you, I am a little burned out and ready for a break. But I have no post for next week, so writing.
Sometimes online marketing is like gambling. No matter what you do you cannot get ahead. Get some activity and you are looking for more. Not getting enough activity makes you fearful. This is similar to winning and losing at gambling. Win and you want to go back and gamble your winnings. Lose and you think you are due a win. Either way you go back and try again. This is a spin. Doing the same thing over and over, when it really makes no sense. How do we avoid the spin?
Good question… but there is hope. Consider what you do that is productive and what you do that is not productive. Going into Google Analytics 6 times a day is not productive. Posting your link on a new website is. Looking for a new lead every 10 minutes is not productive. Writing a new blog post is. Do you see the difference?
